CE 3372 – Water Systems Design FALL 2015 CE 3372 – Water Systems Design Exercise Set 6 Purpose: Develop expertise in application of Manning’s equation, and flow geometry in Open Channel Flow ABET General Criteria 3: (a) . . . apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering (e) . . . solve engineering problems (k) . . . an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engi- neering tools necessary for engineering practice. Exercises 1. Water flows at 8 m 3 /s through a rectangular channel 4 m wide and 3 m deep. If the velocity is 1 m 3 /s , calculate the flow depth in the channel. If this channel expands (downstream) to a width of 5 m and the depth decreases by 0.5 m from the upstream depth, what is the mean section velocity in the expanded section? i Sketch the cross sections (there are two) and label the width, depth, and channel wall height. ii Write the appropriate relationship between velocity, depth, and discharge for each section.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
